I have unfortunately had to change the way the Newted Community server handles SMTP (outbound) email. If you have been using the Newted Community server (newted.dyndns.org) as your SMTP or outbound mail server, you will need to change your email client to use a different SMTP server. Due to the Newted Community server being flagged (inappropriately, if you want my opinion…) by the rather over zealous Open Relay Database as an mail server operating as an open relay, I have had to block the use of the server as an SMTP relay altogether. Bummer.

What this means to you is that you will need to use the SMTP mail server provided by your local ISP when sending mail from your Newted email account. Please note that this does not affect the POP3 or IMAP access to the Newted Community server.

If you have any questions regarding this change, please email hidden; JavaScript is required.

My apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause. Should a solution to this situation be found that satisfies both the ORDB and you, the Newted Community at large, I will let you know via email and on this news page.
